    December CSR Feature: Sidewinder by Headstall

    By Cia

    Well, it's come. The final CSR feature of 2021... and what better than a time-traveling tale of the Old West? Headstall shares his passion for the genre with this comment on his story: "What was life like for a gay man in the Old West? Westerns are not a popular genre, but this author grew up on them, and I wrote this for me. This is my second story set in these times, and I wanted to explore how these men coped... how they survived, and what the attitudes of the times were. A lot of research we

An update in the drama that is Briar's life

Well I'm back home. But only to get my car and stuff. I've decided I'm going to move in with Leah and Simone on a more permanent basis. Maybe all I need is a new start of sorts and to be out of the almost comfort zone home has become. I also don't want to deal with my mother at the moment. Unfortunately I have to soon. I'm waiting for her to come home so we can talk.   More soon maybe.

park on my front lawn...

Well, I got a great surprise the other day I had gotten off work and hour early so I got home an hour early and I had an hour to kill before I needed to pick up my daughter from school, and I saw that Davey was online so I figured I would call and surprise him So I pick up the phone and dial and it rings and rings and no answer so I dial again and same thing, his voice mail picks up, but I know he's home cause he is online so I message him and say... you don't answer your phone or what sweet

Surfer Guy, Shakespeare, & Sylphs

So today I end up down by the swimming pool looking for a missing freshman. The entire swim team is sitting on the steps, their practice nearly over, being lectured by one of the assistant coaches. Several of my friends turn around and say hello then turn back. Then hot surfer guy turns around and sees me. He smiles, calls out my name (Hey, ****), and asks if I'm coming to the major meet on Saturday. It made my rather dim day brighten considerably.   I think I may have a crush on him; this is

'sup?

First things first, I haven't the foggiest idea of what I'm doing here with a blog. But hey, there's a first time for everything.   So why not start off simple. How about the name? For those of you who've found me lurking in live chat, I had to come up with a shorter name lest the lazier typers never talk to me. (Though you might find it presumptuous that I'd expect people to talk to me in the first place--oh well, you've got to leave some things to chance.) Anyway, in a past life some fo

I didn't think something like this would happen

So I mentioned having "bad thoughts" in my last entry right? Well they were getting pretty bad, and I tried to tell my mum last night when I heard her get up to go to the bathroom. She got angry for me wanting to talk to her at like 1am so I didn't mention what I was thinking and feeling. I didn't end up getting to sleep till 4am mostly due to TOU distraction and having Natalie to talk to.   Well this morning I tried to tell her again and tried to show her that angst filled private post I ment

I know you all said that friends you have done that way is not close to you anymore (AFriendlyFace ) But i really have to do this for my piece of mind... i'm hurt and i am couping with it the best way i know how... well not really... but at least how i want to.

I think it's gay

Ok, so I have to go on a small rant before we leave to pick up my suit......... I guess some people don't like it when I use the word gay to describe things, and I guess most people think that when I say I think sometings gay, I mean bad. Well, listen up ...................   Gay doesn't have to mean bad.   I think it's sad that just because people have heard people call things gay and mean it as something they don't like, they automatically assume that gay = bad. Have a little self res

TOU

I decided to start reading The Ordinary Us an hour ago and a half ago because it was the only think I could think of to use as a distraction to keep myself from thinking about things I don't want to be thinking about* and I'm up to chapter 6. f**K I want to knock some that denial out of Quinn. HE IS GAY! I hope he comes to at least accept that soon. Sigh.     *Bad thoughts = me feeling very depressed and crying and an agst filled private post in my Livejournal and me dumping all my thoughts

This post needs a title

So for a while now I've been flirting with the idea of going to the local gay youth group. It's for guys under 25. I say I'm flirting with the idea but I don't think I could ever actually bring myself to go. But I know I have to.   I need to get more of a social life and this group would be a good way of going about that. But as I've stated before, I'm not good with people. Especially new people. And I'm definately intimadated about putting myself out there as a "new guy" in this sort of sett

Sometimes I over react

I have a really bad habit....I forget sometimes that people online dont know me in real life, and i take a lot of things too seriously when I shouldn't let them bug me. I wont say what happened, but I will say that after it happened, I acted like a jerk....in a way. I didnt go off on anyone or something like that. Instead, I just stormed off like a dummy. There's no way that the person I was offended by could have known he was offending me. Anyway, I just want to say sorry to everyone for being

Unreturnd Calls, While Shooting The Shiz

Okay... So i have had time to cool off... i officially don't hate everything now. I think i have decided to give the cold shoulder for about a week, because everytime i do that he seems to try and get closer to me. I guess because he realizes that he doesn't want to lose a friendship. I hope i can maintain me freeze toward him... because he can just melt it all away in the matter of seconds when he smiles at me. He still hasn't called me back. I called him once yesterday, and just got his l

CONFUSED!

Hmm...yesterday night I attended a prom. The prom was for my old school that I had attended a couple of years ago, and 8 people told me to come as their date... I was very flattered, but I refused. Until one of my best friends (a guy) asked me to go as a "guest" of his and that's when I agreed.   The prom started with a very CRAPPY dinner. Plastic chicken, carpet fish, and stone steak. (the prom cost $40 to attend mind you)...then the dinner was followed by the prom court as well as awa

The bunny burrito

Yeah, I know I should go back and crop the black, but oh well. Anyway, he was hiding his face from me this morning while I was trying to put the stuff on his eye, and I thought it was cute, so I left the bf holding him and took a picture.

Sunday drear and damp

It's raining. It's miserable, and yet I'm ok, when to all intents and purposes I should be as miserable as the day.   I've got so much to do, and I can't get my head around any of it. So here I sit loitering, reading blogs, and trying desperately to find something to take my mind off reality.   I work, amongst other things, building websites. I have updates to three of them, yet it's Sunday, and I'm playing the 'Lords day of rest' card. Come tomorrow I know I'll probably regret the wasted ho

Rain, rain go away ...

I don't remember the last sunny day we had here in Taipei. It's been raining pretty much non-stop for a while now, and while it's good (we've had water shortages the past couple of summers), it's not helpful to my mood.   I'm leaning more and more towards moving back to the States this summer. The benefits seem to far outweigh staying here in Taiwan, even if I were to get into the Ph.D. program. For example, foreign professors here don't qualify for pensions, foreigners can't get loans for ca

Busy bee... well for me anyways

I have a busy day tomorrow. I have several things I need to get done.   I *need* a haircut. I've been putting this off for way too long now. The last time I had it done was in November last year. My hair looks like a nest it is so thick. And it's annoying how it always gets in my eyes. I don't know whether or not I should just get it cut or get a it coloured as well. Coloured means more money and I guess that'll be the deciding factor depending on how much they quote me. I also need to decide

I HATE EVERYTHING

*WARNING: THIS BLOG IS EXTREMLY DARK AND DEPRESSING! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK*   I hate everything.       Let me start off by saying i have never spent the night with trav. Not one freaking time in the past year, since we start being "best" friends have i graced his door step. He has spent at least three weekends with me a month in the past year. He has invited me up but it never works out, might i add that he has only done it four times. Once the after the first weekend he spent with me..

Colliding!

I got tapped to write a chapter of Collision, the round-robin murder mystery thing that a bunch of authors are working on. Chapter 14, "Running to Stand Still", is up on AwesomeDude, DeweyWriter, and CRVBOY. Enjoy.   (Amusingly, there's been exactly one piece of mail about it so far, asking when chapter 15's coming out, and that showed up about an hour after chapter 14 went live...)

Domaholics and Athletics drama.

I was just reading some of the posts in the domaholics forum and even though I love his stuff I can't claim to actually be a domaholic myself because I actually have yet to read The Ordinary Us. I don't know if I will either. Why? I'm not sure. I know it must be great because it is Dom. But I don't know. I sometimes don't make sense even to myself.   But apart from TOU, I was and am addicted to all of Dom's other stuff. Well I haven't read Service either but that's just because the plot isn't

My facial hair is a raging beast...

It's true. I never know when it will happen, and for the life of me I can't figure out a pattern to it, but without fail I will wake up at least one day a week and be a completely scruffy bastard. Why can't my beard grow at a nice, normal, uniform pace? Sigh. I guess this is what I get for being Polish...and I shouldn't complain too much, since this beard is the only thing standing between me being offered wine in restaurants and being carded for cigarettes.   If you can't tell, my insomni
